Just when I was thinking things couldn't possibly get any worse in the world, I discovered that Gordon Murray, the creator of Camberwick Green, Trumpton and Chigley, has died. He was 95.
There's another part of my childhood gone forever.
Gordon Murray also operated Spotty Dog in the Woodentops. I loved Spotty Dog when I was three.
And here's Windy Miller, from Camberwick Green, waving goodbye. (My sister used to do a spot on impression of the sound his windmill made as the sails went round!)
